Customer Question

About 16 years ago when I became sexually active, I have been suffering from erectile disfuction.
I have been to Doctors, one Urologist, Sex Therapists and a Hypotist.
It is still happening in which I become aroused and within 30 seconds or less into the act, I lose my election completely. I have trouble climaxing as well.
I tried Cialis and Viagra where they work sometimes and sometimes not.
I feel there maybe something physically wrong and during the years I was told it was performance anxiety. I do get nervous but do not think it has to do with me losing my election within 30 seconds or less , but I do not know whether it is psychological or physical or both.
When I saw the Urologist years ago, he juse listened to me and said my blood work is fine. Is there other tests I need to do ?
My current relationship with my girlfriend is in jeopardy because of this and I lost my marriage over it a few years ago as well.
Please advise the best recommendation and point me in the right direction for help.
Thank you,

You need effective therapy to reduce the anxiety.

Cognitive behavioral therapy.

This has the best evidence base.

I would go to some one good.

As to physical testing.

Testosterone: if it is low, this can be the problem.

Low T can have a variety of effects, including anxiety!

Get that checked.
